The loudspeakers are capable of delivering EVA-300 broadcasts at a sound pressure level of 115 dBA which enables typical coverage of 30 metres with 360˚ background noise of approximately 80 dBA. Loudspeakers are weatherproof enabling fitting in external or internal locations.
During a partial lockdown, external doors will be locked. All staff will be informed of the situation through a discreet message ensuring that pupils are not alarmed, but agreed safety protocols can be followed.
During full lockdown, an audible alarm tone is initiated throughout the school and pupils and staff will immediately return to their designated lock down muster stations. Internal doors will then be closed and locked, and windows and blinds drawn. This will continue until the alarm stops and an ‘All Clear’ message is broadcast.
